Qualia is a stunning hotel. Our room was a suite with a beautiful ocean view. The staff was wonderful. We got to fly back from the Great Barrier Reef on a helicopter and we land on the heli pad at the hotel. The hotel had our buggy/golf cart waiting for us. The food was amazing. I highly recommend the Qualia.
